"I know for one, being in right field, I've been chirped at before out here, but it was a little bit extra this time around".
New York was down 4-0 in the seventh, but scored four runs off of Heath Hembree and Joe Kelly to tie the game. Kelly threw a called third strike past Neil Walker to end the inning with two on - the seventh Yankees batter caught looking as New York repeatedly questioned the strike zone of plate umpire Stu Scheurwater. That makes the Yankees' early-season knack for breaking opponents spirits late in games and winning close contests (only one team has fared better in one-run games than the Yankees have at 7-3... the Red Sox, at 11-4) unlikely to last.
He announces it without worry and free of judgment. Aside from that, beyond next season, the Sox have their own free agents to try and re-sign. Yes, both are considered "long relievers", and are solely viewed as insurance for Domingo German, but they're on the 25-man roster, are they not?
"It was kind of a nice way to do it", Fowler said.
We'll just give a shout out to the guy attempting to break up the fight while holding his beer with one hand and managing to not spill a drop.
The announcement came via Twitter through Adams' official account prior to Game 3 of the Yankees-Sox series.
Pivetta (2-2) bounced back from an awful start against the Nationals in which he lasted only one inning and allowed six runs.
New York is hitting.289 with runners in scoring position and leads the Majors with a.314 batting average in late game situations with the score close. But the ball was clearly over the wall and Martinez circled the bases with his ninth home run.
"I told him before he went up - 'You better hit a homer right here.' And he did", recalled Ramirez. "It was a good pitch". Knuckleballer Steven Wright is about to return and he'll pitch out of the bullpen, although he'll have to pitch his way back into a key role.
Fangraphs breaks down game situations based on stakes, using high-, medium-, and low-leverage labels to describe those moments. Imagine if the Red Sox win the division by one game and the Yankees have to face, say, Shohei Ohtani in the wild-card game.
The Red Sox haven't been bad, they just haven't been as good as the Yankees. "We're going to take off. We're going to keep winning games like we've been doing". Well, now they get to play the Marlins, as Thursday's win was the first of a four-game series.
Martinez had seen a steady diet of breaking balls from the Yankees all series, so when Dellin Betances tried coming inside with a 97-mph heater, he started his swing late. Travis Shaw broke out of a May slump with three hits, and Lorenzo Cain homered for the Brewers, who had 12 hits.
Yankees hitters lead the A.L.in pitches per plate appearance, at 4.07. Odubel Herrera had three hits and Cesar Hernandez added two hits for the Phillies, who swept the Giants in a series for the first time since 1982.
